PKU Recipes!

These recipes were created for adults, teens, and children with PKU (phenylketonuria).  They were developed as part of the PKU Resource Mothers program at Boston Children’s Hospital.  Many of the recipes’ authors are women with PKU who managed healthy pregnancies! If you are a parent of a child or teen who has PKU, cooking together can empower them to better understand and take care of their own nutrition.
